Skip it - I found the answer. Howard explained it thus:
``In OpenLDAP 2.1 and 2.2 the checkpoint directive acts as follows - *when
there is a write operation*, and more than <check> minutes have occurred
since the last checkpoint, perform the checkpoint. If more than <check>
minutes pass after a write without any other write operations occurring,
no checkpoint is performed, so it's possible to lose the last write that
And my timeline was:
Force a checkpoint at 10:17. Update at 10:19. Because fewer than
5 minutes had elapsed *since the last checkpoint*, no checkpoint is done.
